Road-legal racing that takes place in a modified-production car or a hand-built car. Races are point-to-point rather than on circuits; they can have several stages and can be won by time, speed, and/or both. This category includes drivers, teams, cars, point standings, and more.
National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing
NASCAR stands for National Association for Stock Car Auto
Racing. A mechanic from Atlanta named Red Vogt came up with the
acronym and the name. Red Vogt was the mechanic for Red Byron,
NASCAR's first champion. He owned a garage on Hemphill avenue in
Atlanta where moonshiners running shine from Dawsonville, GA into
Atlanta could get their cars "supped up" to outrun law enforcement.
The owner of Red Byrons car was Raymond Parks a known...
As per the Formula 1 website 2012/08/04: " Power steering
systems are allowed, but these must not be electronically
controlled or powered. Four-wheel steering is forbidden. The
car's steering wheel, steering column and steering rack all have to
pass an FIA impact test."
If there is a tie, the driver that has won the most races in the
year is named the champion.
If there is a tie for number of wins, the driver with the most
second place finishes is named the champion.
If there is a tie for wins and number of second place finishes,
the driver with the most third place finishes is named the
The tie breaker rules work their way down the finishing order
until the tie is broken.
It means that a driver gets way ahead of the other car, and lets
off of the throttle before the finish line, thus running a slower
time, than capable. The advantage is a quicker car, racing a slower
Average road racing clutches range anywhere from $350 to $600+.
These clutches differ from drag racing clutches though. And the
average F1 clutch style ranges from $500 to well over $1000 without
a flywheel going with it.
To date, I don't think there's been one. However, the first
woman to drive in NASCAR was Janet Guthrie, and the first black man
to drive was Wendell Scott. You see, there is no formula one for

It was inevitable. Once passenger cars were invented, they
wanted to see wich car/driver was faster than the other and
competed. The 2nd car was built and the 1st guy said my car is
faster. The second car was built. You can learn all about the
history of auto racing here:

moonshiners wanted to get their cantraband liquors to the customer

The red and white striped ones? I've heard them referred to as
"bumpers" and "edges."
The are also referred to as "rumble strips" as they have uneven
paving to alert the drivers that they are on or near the edge of
the track, just like the ones you might find on the road or
highway. However, most driver's now days simple use them as part of
the track instead of the warning system they were designed for!
Gasser race care, or simply "gassers," were a class of 1/4-mile
drag racers that ran on gasoline as opposed to alcohol or other
more exotic fuel such as nitro-methane. The classes for these
"gassers" were many and, in the '60's when they were extremely
popular, the most well-remembered body style being the '33, '40 or
'41 Willys coupe. Bench-engineering in those days leaned toward
power more than aerodynamics and, since these cars typically ran
between 10-second and 16-second quarter mile times, the...
